Alessi (of Alessi Brothers) is een Amerikaans popduo bestaande uit de (eeneiige) tweelingbroers Billy en Bobby Alessi. Ze werden geboren in New York op 12 juli 1953.

Billy en Bobby beginnen eind jaren 60 met de groep Barnaby Bye en spelen in een van de eerste versies van de musical Hair op Broadway. De single Oh, Lori wordt eind jaren 70 een wereldhit. In Nederland bereikt de single in 1977 de zesde plaats. De opvolger, All For A Reason, komt begin 1978 tot 22.

De broers schreven en produceerden voor tal van bekende artiesten, onder wie Paul McCartney, Whitney Houston en Olivia Newton-John. Ook maakten ze veel muziek voor commercials.


Songtekst

Bakin' in the sun, enjoyin' the summer fun
Me and my baby lyin' by the sea
She said, it's been a year,
since she's been with someone else
I said it's funny, she should put it to me that way
All at once, it came to me...

That girl is slippin', driftin' in the night
She's got me talkin' to myself
Hopeless, love mess, slippin', driftin'

Now listen!
Surprised her at the pool one day
When I really made a fool of myself,
I could feel it
She didn't want me around
All the way home, I could see her in my mind
Talkin' to this guy, talkin' to that guy
Lonely, I'm so lonely

My girl is slippin', driftin' in the night
She's got me talkin' to myself
Hopeless, love mess, slippin', driftin'

That girl is slippin', driftin' in the night
She's got me talkin' to myself
Hopeless, love mess, slippin', driftin'

Love has no reason in my heart if I don't have her
Look over my shoulder something got lost along the way
All that I'd do for your love,
Don't mean a thing,
Don't mean a thing
Don't mean a thing,
Don't mean a thing

That girl is slippin', driftin' in the night
She's got me talkin' to myself
Hopeless, love mess, slippin', driftin'
That girl is slippin', driftin' in the night
She's got me talkin' to myself
Hopeless, love mess, slippin', driftin'
